Used by hundreds of thousands of students, INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS, Fourteenth Edition, blends proven coverage with new innovations to ensure you gain a solid understanding of statistical concepts--and see their relevance to your everyday life. The new edition retains the text’s straightforward presentation and traditional outline for descriptive and inferential statistics while incorporating modern technology--including computational software and interactive visual tools--to help you master statistical reasoning and skillfully interpret statistical results. Drawing from decades of classroom teaching experience, the authors clearly illustrate how to apply statistical procedures as they explain how to describe real sets of data, what statistical tests mean in terms of practical application, how to evaluate the validity of the assumptions behind statistical tests, and what to do when statistical assumptions have been violated.

With its thorough explanations, insightful examples, practical exercises, and innovative technology features, this text equips you with a firm foundation in statistical concepts, as well as the tools to apply them to the world around you.
